. not sure if you caught this, but house democratic leader nancy pelosi launched this effort to force a vote, force a vote on extending the middle class tax cut while letting taxes go up first of the year for the wealthiest 2% of americans. keep in mind, republicans own the house majority, so they control which bills, of course, come to vote. and they have not allowed a vote on the tax cuts. so pelosi has begun to circulate this petition and it would force a vote on the measure. they have to get the signatures just to get the vote to happen. if all house democrats sign the petition, she still needs just about two dozen republicans to come on board as well, and that could prove to be a pretty tough task. joining me now from washington, congressman steve israel, democrat of new york. congressman, nice to see you back here on the show. >> thanks, brooke. >> i understand you, yourself, have been reaching out to some of the house republicans on this. have you spoken to any of them? >> i have. and you're right, it is tough for a republican to break with his or her party and sign this petition to g
